Please note that a waiting list is in operation for all of our allotment sites.

To enable more availability of plots we have a policy of reducing the size of larger plots as and when they become available. This means that the number of plots at any one site may increase to more people to experience the benefits of having an allotment.



If you no longer want your allotment site, please let us know so we can cancel your subscription.
